Overview

In general, men have poorer health habits and a shorter life expectancy than women. This may be because they are more likely to engage in unhealthy behaviour, and are less likely than women to adopt preventive health measures. But men’s health issues don’t affect only men- they have a significant impact on their family and friends too. Unfortunately a lot of issues particularly the ones having to do with sex or masculinity- are very hard for men to talk about.

Men’s health clinic involves the evaluation of the following:

  • Erectile Dysfunction: Blood Testosterone, Lipid profile, HbA1C (blood sugar)
  • Andropause: Blood Total Testosterone, SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) and Serum Albumin to calculate Bio-available Testosterone
  • Prostate (Prostate enlargement or Prostate cancer): Serum PSA, Digital rectal examination, ultrasound abdomen pelvis (pre void/post-void residual urine) and uroflowmetry
  • Testicular cancer: Clinical examination and Ultrasound scrotum
